Picture of Boots the Chemist in Harbour Street Ramsgate and a few others

Click on the picture to expand it and then click on it to expand it again. I think I remember this building as Timothy Whites, I have finished work in the bookshop for the day and am writing this at home, which is a nuisance when it comes to dating phots. If I were writing this in the bookshop I would just look it up in the directories, I did try using the internet to find out but have tired of websites trying to sell me cosmetics I don’t use. Does anyone know when Boots was in Harbour Street.   
I think this one is abut the same time but looking the other way.
The first two pictures are freshly scanned so here is the link to where you can download the high definition versions https://photos.app.goo.gl/UiipDUHhq8X1hVYt1

In the bookshop I am noticing a stronger demand for what I think of as dated modern fiction, this is the type of book that falls somewhere between the pulp fiction and the potential literary classic. A fair amount of these went out on the shelves today, here is the link to the pictures of them http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/wilt-in-bookshop.html

  1. Timothy Whites was next door towards town centre - last part of Boots was down some steps and contained their lending library (c1960)


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
